Kris Delmhorst to Play Rockwood Music Hall, 5/15; BLOOD TEST Out 5/13

On May 13, Signature Sounds will release Blood Test, the latest LP from acclaimed singer-songwriter Kris Delmhorst. The release marks Delmhorst's first album of original material since 2008's Shotgun Singer, which Performing Songwriter described as "a tour de force of singing, writing and production that gains in richness with each repetition," and the Boston Herald called "a work of lo-fi beauty, and evidence of an artist taking flight." In between, the versatile performer recorded and released Cars, a covers album of songs by the seminal new wave/proto-punk band of the same name, which PopMatters called a "victory" and noted, "Cars has the potential to bring a brilliant young songwriter to a wider audience."

Co-produced by Delmhorst and fellow songwriter Anders Parker (Varnaline, Gob Iron, New Multitudes), Blood Test was recorded in Brooklyn, NY along with drummer Konrad Meissner (Brandi Carlile, The Silos) and multi-instrumentalist Mark Spencer (Blood Oranges, Lisa Loeb, Laura Cantrell, Son Volt). "I was focused on paring things down to their elements-less flesh, more bone," Delmhorst says. "So it's just the four of us on Blood Test, with very few overdubs, playing the songs and letting the imperfections be part of the story. There's a freshness and spirit of discovery in the tracks that I think shines through and gives them a lot of life." Please see complete track listing below; tour dates will be announced shortly.
